Cat’s Meow Cafe Opening Soon
**Happening Meow: The Cat’s Meow Cafe Kickstarter is live! Let’s do this, Miami!**
The MIA is getting a cat cafe! The Cat’s Meow Café will be the very first Miami cat cafe. As of November 2018, the lease is signed, zoning is approved, and it’s all cats on GO for a 2019 opening in the cool MiMo district. Opening a cat cafe is no small challenge, and we take our sunglasses off to salute Elizabeth Gallardo for bringing us a Miami cat cafe!
The Cat’s Meow Café is on a mission is to re-home at-risk cats that are pulled from kill shelters. They aim to create an ambiance of relaxation and comfort for the cats, while offering an alternative way to foster positive interactions with cats beyond how shelters are able to showcase them in kennels. The Cat’s Meow Café is also planning special delights for their human visitors: they have partnered with local favorite Pedestal Creative Dessert Company to create a cat themed menu that will include gluten free and vegan options.
Pet Therapy and Education Services
The Cat’s Meow Cafe is unique in their plan to offer pet therapy and education services. Specifically, they will be focusing on children with special needs, and especially autism. The sessions will be taught by licensed therapists and certified teachers.
